Jul. 19, 2022 JPXJPXI JPX and JPXI Launch ESG Bond Information Platform


Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX) and JPX Market Innovation & Research, Inc. (JPXI) have today launched the ESG Bond Information Platform.

(Please click on the banner for access to the platform)

The Sustainable Finance Platform Development Working Group, set up by JPX in October 2021, discussed practical issues around the creation of an "information platform" for ESG bonds. With "green" investment growing fast during the net zero transition, the Working Group pointed out the importance of enabling access to information which is useful for the operations of both issuing organizations and investors.

We hope that by bringing information (security information, issuer information (including strategy), use of proceeds/impact, external reviews, etc.) which was previously scattered across the websites of individual issuers, review providers, securities companies, and others together onto one platform, we can improve convenience for market players and visibility of the products, thereby contributing to the development of the sustainable finance market.

To enable timely and comprehensive information collection, this platform is being launched with the cooperation of seven (as of release date) securities companies which act as lead underwriters for bond issuance.

JPX Group will continue to proactively work on sustainability initiatives and will reflect the comments of those involved in the market while considering further expansions of functionality or other improvements on an ongoing basis.
